About the Author
David Feldman is the author of ten previous volumes of Imponderables®. He has a master's degree in popular culture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and consults and lectures on the media. He lives in New York City.
From his book of "imponderables"--explanations of everyday phenomena--author David Feldman has selected two dozen questions that he adapts into an interactive multiple-choice quiz game. The format is ingenious, taking all passivity out of the listening experience. Feldman serves as host and moderator, with three actors playing the panelists, named "A" "B" and "C," who provide three possible answers to each imponderable. After a ten-second musical interlude, the listener must choose between the answers, testing wits with the panelists, after which Feldman provides the correct explanation. Even for those who have never thought about why some eggs are brown, why aluminum foil is shiny on only one side, or what makes whips crack, listeners young and old will enjoy this truly interactive audio game show.
